- Poxvirus Bioinformatics Resource Center: a comprehensive Poxviridae informational and analytical resource

The basic PBRC web portal accesses genomic, annotative and analyticalinformation from a Microsoft SQL Server database. A companionMySQL database provides data to a number of java-based analyticaltools. The database schema used for the PBRC originally wasdeveloped to accommodate bacterial genomes and their genes (proteinand RNA) (10,11) and needed only slight modification to supportthe storage of information on poxvirus genomes and genes (12).The PBRC data schema provides tables to store sequences andbasic sequence annotations, human-annotated curation recordsand tables for the storage of basic analytical information suchas the results of BLAST searches, functional motifs and biophysicalproperties. The database supports all of the web-based querytools and also serves as the data source for all of our web-basedanalytical tools.
